Double Gingerbread Cookies from Dukes and Duchesses

This cookie exchange has been so fun. Today, Randi from Dukes and Duchesses shares some Double Gingerbread Cookies for us. Happy Baking!

I'm Randi from Dukes and Duchesses and I'm so thrilled to be part of the Cookie Exchange again this year! Last year I shared my espresso shortbread recipe and this year I'm sharing these delicious double gingerbread cookies. These cookies have the perfect flavor for Christmas and I promise you the kids will gobble them right up!

To make these cookies, you'll need:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup gingerbread flavored M&M's {if you can't find gingerbread M&M's, you can substitute chocolate chips or regular M&M's}

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine half of the flour, brown sugar, oil, molasses, egg, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed till thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour.

Use a scoop to scoop 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
